  1. Rome: Total War failed to find DirectX 9, which is required for the game to run. Please reinstall DirectX.

    Any suggestions?

    If your hardware especially GPU is dated it might not properly support DX9. What are your current system specs?

    Sorry I am not the most computer savvy, how do I show you my computer specs?

    Thanks for helping!

    Just let us know your make & model, e.g. Dell Dimension 4100 etc., check the paper work/manual that came with your PC and be specific.
